A Note from KBIA President
Seasons Greetings All,

A quick update from the beach! The Kennebunks were hit by a huge Nor’easter last weekend which saw soaking rain and extremely high winds and tides. The water spread over the entire property at high tide several times and dislodged the storage sheds, moved some of the small watercrafts, and seeped into the basement. Fortunately, the water did very little damage and all is restored. Big thanks to John Wiseman and our new program administrator Lorraine Aromando for helping out over the weekend.

I also wanted to take a minute to thank all of you for your continued support of our wonderful organization. Without your support KBIA would not be where we are today – about to enter our 110th year!  I look forward to working with Mimi and the board in 2020 to make KBIA even stronger and better. 

Hoping that you and your families have a wonderful holiday season and a happy and healthy new year!

Warm Regards,

John Bauman
